Nah, he is right, but a year late. All or most these packs are just some other dudes samples. I didn't get it until I released in a small label where they tried talking me into doing a sample pack. He was making trap packs and told me he was selling well. His advice was to take the drums I had, add some fx, rename, and zip it up for him to sell. We have not talked since.

Anyone here spent more on sample packs than an 808 sells for?

Last pack I bought was from beers at discount and it was worth it. I'm done with one shots I have enough.

Thanks for the info! Now we know "the secret" behind all those braaaand-new sample packs!

Recycling already recycled drums.

well, i did get a chuckle out of the OP. i mean, everyone is obviously free to create and buy sample packs to their heart's content...but i must get 3 or 4 email notifications a week about new drum sample packs. unless someone is creating radically new drums on an hourly basis...i have them ALL. every single drum. in every room. with every mic. played by every golden-armed god. or at least, it seems that way.

anyway, i found it funny...

With all the money you save from not buying drum samples, you can get these amazing "sample libraries." *

Have you thought of emailing some of these sample pack producers? Start with a few at first, tell them that you have enough samples now and they don't need to waste their time making more. There is a chance that they will understand and stop making sample packs because they would likely rather be making pot brownies or love or art or pretty much anything except making sample packs. Its hard work to make a sample pack you know.

If you don't email them and let them know, then for sure they are going to continue making samples forever and ever and ever. What then?!?


Also its against your human rights to get a warning at gearslutz because you made a thread against sample packs and the moderator here is sample pack maker himself. His sample pack of Wave Alchemy Synth Drums is purported to be the best sample pack in the world. If I was you I could file complaint with human rights tribunal. Good luck

WTF! Ive seen some lazy stuff released over the years but that takes the biscuit. What fool is going to spend a third of the price of the real thing on some knobswank*r's hour-long unedited ramble?

I'd love to see the sales figures. Maybe its time to release a library called 'Stylophone scale runs' for a tenner and see who'll bite.

For people who like breaks where you're stealing someone else's sound anyway, it's a **** ton less expensive than buying a room full of records... :P

Someone should create a Keanu Reeves conspiracy meme for this topic. What if my hard drive fills up with all these samples but it's really just the same sample over and over and over?

but it takes all the fun, creativity and art out of sampling. sampling is like street art or skateboarding. a subculture using something and twisting it to create something new. You don't have to sample records you can sample anything. sound is everywhere... sample a fart, at least you've created something. sample packs got no SOUL man!

I do some of that too, but the medium isn't that important to me. I tend to focus more on processing the sounds or writing synth patches and emphasize drum programming. Why go get a wax of Amen, Brother when it's already been sampled 4089458 times? :P

This problem has been going since the dark ages of sampling... unfortunately made worse by products such as Maschine. Cue a saturated market of people trying to sell drum beats, phat beats, and every other name under the sun.

I made a decision a long time ago to stick with one or two drum packs, and in that case they were raw recordings from the classic drum machines, and not processed by plugins that essentially squash any character out of it. Go old school... layer, experiment, and process it yourself - create an awesome vibe.

i need restrictions. a pack with 5000+ kicks would just have me browsing going nah... next... all night.
a couple of the actual drum machines works best for me.
